Thousands of car accidents occur every day in the U.S., most involving two or more moving vehicles. However, some car accidents do involve non-moving, or parked, vehicles as well. Just as accidents involving moving cars can have serious effects on those involved, these parked car accidents can also be sources of unwanted expenses and injury for the people in the parked cars. Unfortunately, many people are injured in such accidents each year and are left with both physical injury and financial expense.
Areas Where Parked Car Accidents Occur
Although car accidents involving parked cars can happen anywhere cars are parked, but they tend to occur with more frequency in certain areas, such as:
- Parking lots
- School zones
- Residential neighborhoods
- At traffic lights
Typically, these areas see more car accidents involving parked cars than other areas. Although someone is not always in the parked vehicle, if they are, they may be seriously injured in such an accident. When this is the case, the driver who hit the parked car may be held responsible for the losses and injuries the other party or parties sustain.
